Paul
Would like to know the answer...even though I usually hit my tank bag before I hit full lock

By risers are you referring to heli-bars? I have the gen 3s.

On the right, in North America we do not have the on-off. BTW, were you once happy and had a good wife and had enough money to last you for life?
Yes. The 4 way flasher switch (hazard warning lights, as we call them) is on the left switch, on the top surface set back towards the front of the bike, out of accidental operation way.

And Maura, I'm feeble and broken with age. The lines on my face make a well written page!

Go buy another nut and keep the stress to a minimum, it isn't worth the hassle.

Hello Igor,
It is best to start a new thread when you wish to discuss a new subject. If you need help on how to do that, let us know and we can give you the step by step.

As for the taillight, it is part of the rear cowl assembly.

to remove it, you must do the following:
1. remove the grab rail center plate (4 socket bolts with sleeves)
2. remove the grab rails (remove the seat, saddlebags, seat lock, 4 bolts washers and collars, release the seat lock cable)
3. remove the side cover (left side) three socket bolts
4. now the rear cowl itself , 4 screws, 2 socket bolts, 2 trim clips
5. disconnect the electrical connections.

This is transcribed from the manual, more than enough for me to concur with ligito, get a new bolt and forget taking all this off.

If the nut is in the actual tail light you might just want to get it out.
A loose nut rattling around in the plastic shell is almost assuredly haze the plastic substantially.
You might just be able to get the nut out without removing the assembly.
Remove the sockets. A magnet on a string through the socket hole.
Shake the bike. Magnet grabs the nut you pull the string.
Magnet with nut attached in hand.

IMHO, the police switch isn't as useful as it could be, because the functions of the main switch (the 4-position sliding switch in the middle) are progressive, rather than available individually. Still, it is a very neat "OEM" solution to the problem of auxilliary switch location.

I also like the square police pushbutton switches I've got on my ST1300 (see pic below).

As for the P-switch, I wrote up this page several years ago when I was about to install one on my VFR. I actually wired it up somewhat differently in the end, IIRC, which effort involved completely re-wiring the lighting wiring on the bike to include "PHIDs", fog lights, an HID conversion () and status lights for each function. Not exactly plug n' play.

Ciao,

Maura, if you need or would like some help with the install of the switch drop me a note. I live for electrical stuff and would be happy to help.
